I have heard it said several times that a person of average means cannot understand dharma from a book without the help of a well qualified teacher. With this book in hand I would have to say that is certainly true. Buy the book and find a Geshe then sit, sit and sit some more.
Very thorough and academic. Also uses lots of precise terminology. Good choice for those looking to gain a more thorough understanding.
